    I don't use a footprint with my Fly Creek, but were I to I'd just go to a local hardware store and buy the thinnest plastic painters drop cloth I could find... I think Frost King makes a 1.5 mil that...

    My feet didn't change size at all, and this was back in the late 90's when packs were significantly heavier.

    In other words, everyone is different. My guess, and it's only a guess... if you're...

    I threw out my back about 15 years ago, and have had problems with it ever since. The NeoAir, or a hammock, has worked well for me.

    That will be enough. It's only getting down into the mid-50's at sea level, so up at elevation at worst it should only get down into the mid-to-high-40's. Which is frankly quite nice. Bugs are...

    I went three days in Maine without seeing another single living human (excluding a seaplane that I saw land on the far side of a lake I was hiking along, maybe 1/4 mile away). Which I was frankly...

    Definitely this. One of the best shelters on the AT. Well worth the side trail to get there (and it's an easy side trail, flat along the ridge for the most part).

    I've got wet in hammocks before, even with a perfect tarp pitch. Sometimes, it just doesn't matter what you do.

    It doesn't matter either way, but I see no reason not to do it. Just more time you get to spend in the woods. :) That said, if you don't want to do it, no worries there either.

    I forgot how much the Mt Rogers area looks like the northern part of the trail. Definitely one of my more favorite parts of the trail in the south.

    On the PCT in the desert I used an old cotton/poly white work shirt. Worked great out there. On the AT... I'd probably stick to synthetic only. Humidity is too high, a cotton shirt would never dry.

    Depends on if it's wet or not. If it's dry, I stuff. If it's wet, I fold in half to keep the floor separated from the rest of the tent, and then roll, and then stuff.
